Eric Collins '17
Collins '17 and Dennis '18 Create New Computer Programming Language

As many who have tried computer coding know, the introductory languages used in the field can often be difficult to approach and unintuitive. It is with this in mind that Eric Collins ’17 and Alex Dennis ’18 with Associate Professor of Computer Science Alistair Campbell, are this summer creating a new programming language called CSPy geared specifically toward beginners.  More ...

Steve Laurent Cunden '18 works on a robotic arm.
Building a Better Robot

Steven Laurent Cunden ’18 is this summer helping to further develop the robotics technologies used in the Physics 245 course, Electronics and Computers. Cunden is working with the class instructor, Associate Professor of Physics Brian Collet, on enabling the relatively simplistic robotic arms used in the course to receive and react to positional feedback.  More ...

Thomas Hoffman '16
Thomas Hoffman ’16 Adds Discovery to Hamilton Intro. Physics Labs

When people recall what they enjoyed most about science classes – whether  in college, high school or even earlier – chances are they remember hands-on experiments and the excitement of discovering something new for themselves. This element of discovery is important to Thomas Hoffman ’16 and Adam Lark, director of physics laboratories. The two are working together to add more discovery-based elements to introductory physics labs on campus, hoping to improve the learning experience for physics students.  More ...

Hayley Goodrich ’17 Looks into Binocular Rivalry in Neuroscience Research

Hayley Goodrich ’17 is replicating 2015 graduate Carly Poremba’s senior neuroscience thesis this summer in the hopes of contributing to the academic literature and research agenda surrounding binocular rivalry. Goodrich’s project, titled the Binocular Rivalry Study, seeks to test the efficacy of Poremba’s thesis conclusions regarding the postdictive effects of a later stimulus on a previously subconsciously processed stimulus.  More ...

Alex Jones '16
Alex Jones ’16 Investigates Effects of Vitamin C on Metabolism

This summer, Alex Jones ’16 is conducting an important research project to better understand how vitamin C affects growth and development. He is working with Professor of Biology Herm Lehman to study what role vitamin C plays in the metabolism of Manduca sexta, a kind of hornworm that is frequently used in scientific experiments. Jones and Lehman’s research this summer is one part of an ongoing project to determine how exactly vitamin C is necessary for growth and development.  More ...

Archaeology Course Research Reveals Tribal Territory Expanse

This summer, a group of nine students, including five Hamilton students Lindsay Buff, Anna Arnn, Petra Elfström, Mariah Walzer, and Grace Berg spent six weeks in the picturesque Slocan Valley, British Columbia, as participants in Hamilton’s archaeology field school led by Nathan Goodale, associate professor of anthropology, and Alissa Nauman.  More ...

Williams Quoted in Science on Monarch Decline

In an article on the news site of the journal Science on varying studies related to monarch butterfly migration declines, Ernest Williams, the William R. Kenan Professor of Biology Emeritus and lecturer in biology, warned that concerns over migration “should be added to—but not replace—the other issues we know to be affecting monarchs.” The Aug. 5 article was titled “Monarch butterfly studies tell a perplexing tale.”  More ...

Anna Arnn '17
Anna Arnn ’17 Takes to Archaeological Field Work

Anna Arnn ’17 is taking her studies in archaeology into the field this summer as part of a program through the University of Montana Missoula. Through the project Arnn will be working with UMM graduate student Matt Walsh, performing faunal analysis, or the study of animal remains in the context of archaeology.  More ...
